Learn about Papercut's Web Print feature at which enables printing for web-capable devices such as laptops, phones, tablets, as well as Chrome OS devices.

Chrome OS at Evergreen

Chrome devices are available in multiple places on campus. There are chromebooks available for checkout in the library, there is a mobile lab of chromebooks (the Chrome Cart) available for class reservations, and there are various public kiosks that are powered by chrome boxes. Printing from these devices is available via Papercut's web print function. Jobs can be released to any lab printers. (Library, Computer Center, CAL, Tacoma)

To print from a personal device, you can use web print, or see instructions for using Evergreen's [Print].

Web Printing from Chrome OS

  • Navigate to or follow the boomark in the "Printing" folder on the bookmark bar.
  • Log in using your Evergreen or Papercut credentials
    • For community members, you must create an account using the self-registration link beneath the login form.
  • Select Web Print from the left panel
  • Select Submit a Job
  • Select oly-ac-print\CC_Printers (virtual) for the Computer Center, oly-ac-print\LIB-MainFloor (virtual) for the Library 2nd floor, oly-ac-print\LIB3-Printer (virtual) for the Library 3rd floor, or oly-ac-print\SC_DoubleSided (virtual) for the CAL
